Publisher's Summary

Some dogs need a little help.

Some dogs are afraid, or excited, or reactive. Dogs that "don't listen" and "go crazy" don't live the lives we - or they - want.

Fired Up, Frantic, and Freaked Out can change that. Simple steps and an accessible, conversational tone from award-winning, internationally-known trainer Laura VanArendonk Baugh CPDT-KA KPACTP make calming the agitated dog not only possible, but pleasant.  

In this book you'll learn how to achieve change in short, simple training sessions of a minute or less; maximize the effects of natural brain chemistry; know when to call in medical help; "clean up" unreliable behaviors in both overexcited sport dogs and pets at home; and recognize how fear, aggression, and excitement are variants of the same root problem.  

The conversational tone is both informative and fun-very accessible, and it feels like the listener has a consulting trainer standing at her shoulder! Bring your dog from emotional to thoughtful, and enjoy a calmer, more enriched life with your best friend.

Informative and a must for reactive dog parents

This book is wonderful for dog trainers and owners alike when you want to better understand reactive and or aggressive dogs. This opens up so many new doors for pet parents and trainers alike when it comes to their dogs. A must read.
